There’s still plenty of time left to knock out handmade projects for those on your holiday gift list.  There’s even time to knit or crochet some of these items for upcoming Hannukah gifts.  So, to help you make some crafting decisions, I have included a round up of some of our fast finish patterns suitable for men and women.  Since these projects require either one or two balls, they’re extremely portable – allowing you to knit or crochet on the go!
